I agree!  The main trick is to find things that you are sure that
won't change before you finish documenting them.

This gives me the opportunity to state publically: I've done some work
on Hurd documentation.

Many separate documents are good, but if anybody can integrate their
work into the framework that exists for the Hurd manual, please do so.
If your docs don't seem like they'd fit into that framework, but you
think they should, please don't hesitate to write me.

Please take a look at:


There are some notes I've added to hurd.texi that tell you some of the
parts of the Hurd that are Officially In Flux(tm), so that you don't
waste time documenting things that will change fairly soon.

I hope to have this merged into the latest Hurd sources soon, too.

Thanks for asking,
